Re: Marvel Studios may be planning more MCU for the small screen

Well Winter Soldier confirmed the comics full name and birthdate for her (Natalia Alianovna Romanoff, November 22, 1984, a few days older than me).

From the movies we know she was a KGB agent of some form, with a specialised skillset which apparently consisteing of the cold blooded massacre of anyone the agency pointed her at, which at some point included a hospital, families, children etc

Barton was sent by SHIELD to kill her and for some reason, gave her a second chance, she was taken to SHIELD's American HQ and extensively retrained to be one of them, but essentially still the master assassin sent to eliminate anyone they thought threatened world peace.

So I'd say all we need to know is, she kills people for a living, and doesn't (to her own admission in TWS) really care who.
